Gained points by closing a card

I recieved a score alert today and it informed me that i gained 8 points reason was for a change on 1 of my cards. I closed my Capital one card on Saturday which only had a $600 limit and been open for 11 months. I expected to lose maybe a point or 2 but never to gain any. Closing it was no big deal as it was my only card with a low limit.
